Looking at the arms above the door, it looks to me like a coronet with something emanating from it?

Is that a leaf on the right-hand side of the blurry bit?

Looks like a Camel in the crown to me, also the beach and hut reminded me of Hastings.

Camels are very rare in UK Heraldry! ;D

Best I can find is Hamilton:
Out of a ducal coronet an oak-tree fructed proper, cut through the main stem by a framesaw proper, the frame or--Crest of HAMILTON, Duke of Hamilton and Brandon.

Might a clearer scan be possible noytd?

On your second photo on page one we can see the bottom half of the shield above the door. This looks clearer than the shield in the other photos, so perhaps a good scan of that, even though the top half is missing, might reveal something.

Good afternoon,

Afraid not Carol, far two big and has 3 floors not 2. Oddly, on the link it says at the top demolished 1957. The final picture says taken in the 60s showing extent of additional building. :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\

as I said earlier John...maybe not but as Blaxlands of Kent is the Family that the poster was interested in, I thought it worth posting.

Back again,

Actually Carol, the newspaper description doesn't appear to match the photo's. There has to be more than 8 bedrooms in that place.

Also, the additional building is on the front of the house and looks like a school. Had a look online but can't find anything to match.
